said this, when i think back myself of may 2010 when the u.k. deficit was at 11%, when you were in office, right? and i tried to imagine what the situation would be like today if no such fiscal consolidation program had been decided, i shiver. that is what the i.m.f. says about the plans of the last labor government. now, he raises the issue of growth. >> order! >> it is not acceptable to shout down either the prime minister or the leader of the opposition and the public have a very low opinion of that kind of behavior. let's hear the questions and hear the answers. the prime minister? >> he raises the issue of america and american growth. the fact is our recession was longer and deeper than the recession in america. the biggest banking bust was not an american bank, it was a british bank. they want to talk about tomorrow because he doesn't want to talk about yesterday when the two people responsible for the regulation of the bank and the performance of our economy are sitting right there on the opposition benches. >> once again, a completely incompensable answer, mr. speaker. i
deficit and debt. >> reporter: athena jones, cnn, washington. >>> president obama's expected to talk mainly jobs and the economy on tuesday. he may have also especially selected the birthday of president lincoln for the date of his address. margaret hoover, cnn political contributor and republican consultant working on behalf of individuals on policy issues and cnn contributor and senior political columnist for "newsweek" and the "daily beast" john avalon join me from new york. thank you for being here. let's talk about the president, what do you think he will say that will be different say from addresses in the past? margaret, ladies first. >> kind of you, appreciate it. look i hope that he takes a page out of lincoln's book. if he truly picked lincoln's birthday for this moment, this is a great opportunity to realize that against the backdrop of his inaugural address, if he really wants a legacy, legacy legislative reform. the reality is there's a divided government and he has an opportunity to not polarize the debate, but reach out and broaden the debate and include republicans. t
on top of welfare, get our deficit down, get our economy moving, or do anything else. >> today we discover he has not even got a clue about his own policy. his answers remind us of what his party and country are saying about him. the only people he listens to are a small group of rich and powerful people at the top. that is why he has come up with a policy that is unworkable and unfair. he is a prime minister who is weak, incompetent, and totally out of touch. >> that is pathetic scripted rubbish that we get used to every wednesday. on the issue of who listens to hill, i have a very clear idea of who he listens to, because we heard it in a the lse lecture by len mccluskey, who said this -- "i met ed miliband and he asked me this question -- if you had three wishes, three things you would like us to do if we got back into power , what would you like them to be? his answer -- trade union freedom, trade union freedom, trade union freedom. that is who he wants to be the fairy godmother to. >> at the time of the strategic defense and security review two and a half years ago, my friend
deficit spending a dangerous measure. fdr spent the 1932 campaign declaring his faith in a balanced budget and blasting hoover as a big spender. roosevelt combined his criticism of republican deficits with an appeal to "the forgotten man." in november, "the forgotten man" spoke. millions voted for roosevelt and hoped. but in the four months before inauguration, the depression grew deeper. in march 1933, roosevelt was the leader of a nation with 1/4 of its work force unemployed. something had to be done. so first of all, let me assert my firm belief that the only thing we have to fear is fear itself. nameless, unreasoning, unjustified terror which paralyzes the... rosina tucker remembers the hope returning. uh, you remember his saying, "there's nothing to fear but fear itself." he had his fireside talks... and, uh... uh, the people listened to them all over the united states. they made it a point to have nothing to do during those fireside talks. they sort of... it seemed to me a sacred time, uh, as if a father was talking to his children who were afraid. it was in that period of despair th
the deficit instead but it didn't happen. house republicans poind out they passed a bill to replace the sequester with cuts to federal worker pay, food stamps and other programs. democrats say that puts the burden on poor and middle class americans to pay for debt reduction. >> remember the american people still believe by an overwhelming margin that the rich should contribute to this. >> reporter: republicans argue democrats have no plan for replacing the sequester beyond eliminating tax breaks for corporate jet owners and oil companies. >> these aren't real solutions, mr. president. they're poll tested gimmicks. >> reporter: the cuts were originally supposed to kick in last month, but a last-minute deal pushed them off for two months. the president is meeting at this hour with labor leaders later this afternoon with business leaders and the subject, norah and charlie, is sure to come up. >> nancy cordes thanks. >>> meantime house majority leader eric cantor will be outlining a new agenda for his party today calling for change. he wants republicans to focus
absolutely no suggestion for how to get on top of welfare, get our deficit down, get our economy moving, or frankly do anything else. >> ed miliband. >> so today we discover he hasn't even got a clue about his own policy that he is introduced here and his answers today remind us what his party and the country are saying about him. the only people are a small group of rich and powerful people. that's what he is come up a policy that is unworkable and unfair. is a prime minister who is weak, incompetent, and totally out of touch. >> totally pathetic rubbish that we get used to every wednesday. and on the issue, on the issue of who listens to do, i have a very clear idea of who he listens to. because we heard in the al as he lecture by le lynn mccluskey. and len mccluskey said this. he says i met ed miliband and he asked me this question that this is the question he asked him. lynn, if you had three wishes, three things you would like us to do, if we got back into power, what would you like them to be? and len mccluskey's answer, trade union, freedom, trade union, freedom, trade union, fre
innovation and all that and then we looking global markets that began to cut the trade deficit. >> okay, next squishing. anybody else have one? okay, create, over here. >> hi, i'm sure chris, former hill staffer. we are earlier atlantic is involved in the economic issues because they're important to national security issues and we heard in this discussion how people produce valuable things for themselves at home and in the internet age we've had an instance where hundreds of millions of people have gained access to more information than we've ever had before creating tremendous value for all of them and a lot of it is missed in economic measurements in gdp. so before going to be taking some of the panelists have said, a lot of value from factories into our home, they're going to be missed by traditional economic measurements. are we going to reconcile that and how are we going to do with? [inaudible] >> i think there's no question they're abruptly important measurement issues. if you have an economy that is still solely on material objects, it's a lot easier to count things to say, do they ma
two years ago the largest structural deficit in our budget was faced by new mexicans in the history of new mexico. skeptics said we could not balance the budget without east a massive -- without either a massive tax increase or making deep cuts to classroom spending and to medicaid. but we came together in a bipartisan manner, and together we proved the skeptics wrong. [applause] for two years in a row, we compromised and passed good, balanced budgets. we protected critical priorities like classroom spending and basic health care for the most vulnerable. we protected childcare for working moms, school clothes for kids in need. and let's remember we accomplished all of this without raising taxes. [applause] not only did we eliminate the deficit, we created a surplus. this wasn't a republican accomplishment or a democratic accomplishment. it was an accomplishment we achieved together. the next year we used those surplus tax dollars wisely. we put some in our state savings account, increasing our reserve levels. we used some to increase funding for education, targeting reading and earl
that the european parliament might not pass a budget deal. -- pass a budget deal which they regard as a deficit deal. there may yet be hurdles to overcome. am i he is one of the arctic -- >> he is one of the architects of the us drone program. what could be leadership asked the leadership of john brennan mean for us policy -- what could the leadership of john brennan mean for us policy? >> hello. welcome back. for much of europe, it remains very cold and unsettled. lots of frontal systems, active frontal systems. a lot of snow whooshing up across -- pushing up across poland. still some significant snowfall. we are likely to see further snow the next few days. most of the heaviest snow will be across the ukraine and extending up towards western parts of russia. you see some snow over the dolomites. there is some patchy snow further to the west. many of these frontal systems are looking relatively weak at the moment. towards iberia, temperatures in double figures in madrid. north africa, still this is affecting algeria, some heavy downpours expected. temperatures probably no higher than 9 degrees, way
of the u.s. trade deficit. but still, traders are not heading into the weekend in a positive mood. outlooks that companies have been giving, and of course on the trading week, were not convincing, and that is why the dax lost more than 2% in the course of this trading week. >> a quick look at the market numbers now -- the dax closed up 5.81%. the euro stoxx 50 gain more. in new york, the dow is going up by about 0.3%. the bureau is now trading at one -- $1.3358, slightly down. >> talk about going against the mainstream -- the ceo of volkswagen says he wants to take a pay cut even though under the company's rules, his salary should be going up by millions. >> he told the german magazine that it is not possible to justify a pay package of 20 million euros to ordinary people. vw is about to enter into wage talks with production staff. in 2011, he was the highest paid ceo in germany. >> china is continuing to expand its role as the workshop of the world with, according to its own figures, exports growing 25% in january compared to the same time last year. that far exceeds expectations. >> and i
have a deficit. here's a project that gets substantial tax revenue without raising taxes through economic activity, through job creation. further and perhaps most importantly, it will help put our country within striking range of a long-sought goal -- true energy security. for the first time in generations, the united states with its friend and ally canada will have the capacity to produce more energy than we use, reducing or eliminating our reliance on the middle east and other volatile parts of the world. the argument has been advanced that the oil sands will increase carbon emissions and that failing to build the keystone x.l. will somehow reduce emissions. but let's look at that claim. that's the other piece. let's look at the environmental aspects of this project. today, more than 80% of all new recovery in the oil sands is being accomplished in situ, a technology that makes oil sands carbon footprint comparable to conventional drilling. in fact, the oil sands industry has reduced greenhouse gas emissions per barrel of oil produced by an average of 26% since 1990, with some
really heart-breaking deficits in their academic skills. on average a fifth grader comes to our school at least two or three grade levels behind. >> reporter: these kinds of educational deficits have caused lingering problems for a city where one-third of all students fail to graduate on time. >> we have to make sure that we are... >> reporter: that has led to a concentrated effort by bridgeport academy middle school. like all our achievement first schools to place and keep great teachers in the classroom. in order to identify who those great teachers are, achievement first ceo says the organization has developed a comprehensive checklist to evaluate its teachers. >> in the past teacher evaluation has focused on observations which at their worst become staged dog and pony show experiences that don't actually tell you a lot about teachers' effectiveness or more importantly how they need to improve. >> i want us now to walk quickly through the school work for the whole observation. >> reporter: at this school teacher observations are detailed bi-weekly and discussed at length in regular
: this year's federal budget deficit will fall below a trillion dollars for the first time since president obama took office. the congressional budget office projected today the red ink will be roughly $845 billion. it was $1.1 trillion last year. the c.b.o. attributed the decline in part to new tax hikes and to automatic spending cuts scheduled to take effect in march. but it said those same factors may also hold back economic growth. personal computer maker dell has announced it's going private. the company detailed a $24 billion buyout of stockholders today. it's the largest deal of its kind since the great recession. dell has been publicly traded for nearly 25 years. but sales have waned as consumers have shifted towards smartphones and tablets. britain took a major step today toward legalizing same-sex marriage nationwide. the house of commons voted more than 2-1 to legalize the practice. that's despite sharp divisions in the ruling conservative party. prime minister david cameron acknowledged the split, but supported the bill. >> i think it's delight gay people should be able to get
and deficit. he doesn't share the commitment with us on that. so, ok, we're going to keep at it on that. but at the same time, you've got so many millions of americans who feel that they have become an afterthought. my purpose in saying this is we have conservative principles that actually can work for their life again. and that's what we're going to be about promoting. >> before you go, i want to ask you about the debate over drones. it's a key part of the president's national security policy. why hasn't congress passed any additional legislation to review drone policy, to really understand where there ought to be checks and balances in the time that's passed since the original authorization post-9/11 that gave the president the authority to have a kill list, as the president works off of, for drones? >> you know, i'm glad to hear that the administration has released the memo that is under discussion to our intelligence committees in both the house and the senate. we're going to be about oversight and getting into examining that memo. but, you know, let's just say -- suffice it is to s
're going to be serious about reducing our deficit, can we combine some smart spending cuts because there's still some waste in government. can we reform our health care programs in particular because we spend a lot more on health care than every other country does, and we don't get better outcomes. there's a lot of waste in the system. there are things we can do to reduce health care costs. and can we close some loopholes and deductions that folks who are well connected and have a lot of accountants and lawyers can take advantage of. they end up paying lower rates than a bus driver or a cop. can we close some of those loopholes? if you combine those things together, then we can not only reduce our deficit, but we can continue to invest in things like education and research and development that are going to help us grow. washington cannot continually operate under a cloud of crisis. that freezes up consumers. it gets businesses worried. we can't afford these self-inflicted wounds. there is a way for us to solve these budget problems in a responsible way through a
to trim the deficit instead. but it didn't happen. house republicans point out they've passed the bill to replace the sequester with cuts to federal worker pay, food stamps, and other programs. democrats say that puts the burden on poor and middle-class americans to pay for debt reduction. >> remember, the american people still believe by an overwhelming margin that the rich should contribute to this. >> reporter: but republicans argue democrats have no plan for replacing the sequester beyond eliminating tax breaks from corporate jet owners and oil companies. >> these aren't real solutions, mr. president. they'regimmicks. >> reporter: the sequester was originally supposed to quick in last month, but a last-minute deal between the vice president and senator mcconnell, who you just saw, pushed it off for two months. since then, the will to enact a long-term deal appears, charlie and nora, to have evaporated. >> nancy cordes. >>> meantime, house majority leader eric cantor will be outlining a new agenda for his party today. he'll call on republicans to focus on issues like education and h
is if we can reduce the deficit, can we combine some spending cuts because there's still waste in government, can we reform our health care because we spend more than eany other country. there's ways to reduce health care costs. and can we close loopholes and deductions that folks that are well connected and have a lot of accountants and lawyers can take advantage of, can we close some of those loopholes. if you combine those things together, then we cannot only reduce our deficit but we can continue to invest in things like education and research and development that's going to help us grow. washington cannot continually operate under a cloud of crisis. that freezes up consumers, it gets businesses worried. we can't afford these self-inflicted wounds. and there's a way for us to resolve these budget problems in a responsible way through a balanced approach that the vast majority agrees with. there's no reason why we can't. we can't have washington dysfunction getting in the way. >> it's interesting to hear them say we do need additional revenue but it's not going to come from
and government spending was the answer with the trillions of dollars in deficits the last four years we should have a roaring economy, but the president, i suspect, is going to stick to husband guis guns y hear about immigration he reform, climate change, but i think the public is most concerned about the economy. >> mike: and hey, chris, nancy pelosis and john mccain on the show today. >> and we sat down with nancy pelosi. and one thing we talked about gun control she's calling for a study and obviously they want bans on guns and things like that. she says let's have a study whether or not this violence out of hollywood creates any violence in the real world and i said do we really need another study? here is a clip. >> why don't you go to your friends in hollywood and challenge them, shame them and say, knock it off? >> i do think whenever we do when you tell them it's evidence-based we have that throughout our proposal. in other words, we don't want to just be anecdotally writing bills. >> so the bottom line was, she was saying, you know, we're going after the gun lobby, but i'm not going t
to shrink the government, we want to shrink the deficit but not the why. >> i definitely think we are about solving the big problems, macro fiscal problems. the president hasn't joined us. but the reason we're doing that is we want to help people. we don't want to see interest rates skyrocket. what's that going to do to people who are already struggling to pay their mortgage? we don't want to see taxes go up anymore. what's that going to do to somebody who already has now just experienced a tax hike. we want to make life work again, and the path to do that does include trying to get a handle on the fiscal situation here in washington, but it also means putting in place policies that help people with their health care costs, their education needs, college tuition and the rest. >> you want to make people's lives better. some might ask how you can do that and still slash the federal budget the way you want to slash in order to meet your other goal, which is to reduce the deficit. >> well, again, these are, you know, things that we're trying to do all to benefit americans, right? and i think if
the spanish deficit and perhaps more difficult for him to ask for insensitive measures to stimulate the economy at the european level. there's a trend on twitter tweeting for the -- the contractions for rajoy reject and that's on the right very well the situation here in spain. since the case, the corruption case was reported by the newspaper a few days ago. rajoy lost six points in the opinion polls in approval ratings. he is now amid 24%. that being said, the leader, the socialist leader of the opposition remains in terms of rating. so even if there's a lot of pressure on rajoy, there's now not any alternative in shape. that's the reason why the worry in the market. that's the reason for the decline today on the ibex 35. >> stephane, thanks for that. the bond, is it driven by political uncertainty, of course, but the pmi is up this morning for spain, up 47. but the employment pmi, down to 42 and that's back from the low since this time last year. >> i don't like the numbers. if you'd asked me six months ago, i would have probably said possibility of spanish growth falling off the
's a little schizophrenia going on. a lot of folks think we need to cut and solve the deficit and now when we face cuts and face austerity, it's very difficult. the bottom line is that because of the divided government, it's very difficult for there to be a global solution that would, you know, make a lot of rationale sense. and, instead, we're facing a series of cuts like the sequester that although they look disorganized are slowly getting us towards a more balanced budget. i think the markets have pretty much digested the fact that the sequester is likely. i doubt that it will have a significant impact on the markets because i think everybody already knows it's likely to happen. >> this goes back, again, to one of your concerns. certainly a concern for a lot of people in the u.s., which is where is the middle any more inspect and it's interesting because in your career you've switched parties. explain that move. are there going to be any more like you? >> well, you know, i used to be a moderate republican and now it's a moderate democrat. but the truth is, there aren't very many moderates
deficit figures are due out at 8:30 a.m. eastern. the gap is expected to narrow to about $45 billion. then, 10:00, december wholesale trade. the usda's crop report is out at 12:00 insurance. and we're get earnings from cboe, entergy, moody's and aol. >>> eu leaders could see the first real term cut in the history of the region's budget. jewel yeah is in brussels for us and joins us now. jewels, they had an all-night meeting and this has been portrayed as a potential victory for david cameron. is that how it's going to play out? >> if we end up with a real term cut in its budget, it's arguably a real term budget. i think he's going to have a tough time coming back to the uk and explaining that on monday if this is actually what we get. we're expecting the talks to resume in just under an hour's time and they're hoping to have a final proposal at that stage and things could move quite quickly. we live in hope. what we have heard earlier is that the rumors that italy are happy, so that would fit with this suggestion. but, you know, i know you were making the point earlier that this is a symbo
